        I had forgotten how good my music could sound ... my old cables were worn out, and were cutting in and out, and not delivering the full sound. These sound crystal clear.

        The only problem with this cable is that it is on the heavy side, which means that if you wear your music player on your belt, the weight of the cable will pull down somewhat hard on the connector end. Eventually it can wear out at that end. So I try to treat it carefully, even wearing my iPod Shuffle upside down, so that the cable hangs down naturally instead of going around a corner.

        Other than that, it is a perfectly good replacement cable for my TripleFi ear buds.

        My first impression of the cable was very favorable; it seemed rugged and durable. However, after one week of use (I work in lab and spend most of the day plugged in to my Ipod) the 3.5 mm metal jack part of the cable got bent and ceased to properly contact the Ipod port, thus resulting in intermittent audio loss in one of the headphones. The connection could be restored by forcing the cable into place (by force taping the cable to the ipod) but this was far from ideal and soon stopped working. The 3.5 mm metal jack is not rigid as in most cables and can thus be easily bent, resulting in connectivity loss and rendering the cable useless.

                    I had already replaced my original UE cable a couple of years ago and thought it would be a good idea to find another replacement before they are no longer available. These have nice supple rubber cable housing compared to the hard plastic style covering on the UE originals. Glad I made the purchase.

                        The cable is great! Thick, sound's more 'solid' than the stock cable.

                        My only qualm is that there is no memory wire. My Triple.Fi 10's are hard enough to fit in my ear - it becomes a bit more difficult without the memory wire!

                              The cable is solid, and the jack connection seems solid to me. I don't baby my earphones, so I think this will be a great replacement cable for me. I would give it five stars, except,

                              1. It has a fairly large straight jack connection. It seems solid, but aright angle connection is more comfortable.

                              2. The cable is not bendable wires at the earpiece connection. Some don't like the wires a the ear connection, but I find them alot better for keeping the earphones on my ear and miss them from the factory UE cables.

                                    One con is that there is no preforming of the cable near the ear to help it turn around the top and back down, so the fit isn't as secure as the original or the Null Audio cables. Upside - VERY durable cable and connector.
